Sorry for the double post :p

Made a practice sig cause I was BOREDDD. Let me know what you think of it:

(I know the borders are a little dodgy, too much effort to fix them :rolleyes:)

I'll just ignore that ; )


Very nice, the borders could use some anisotropic smoothing. That would help a bit but it's likely you would also have to use the smudge, blend and eraser tools to get it just right. Make sure to zoom in really far when doing so.

sure thing Yakta-I know a little PS as well (not a whole lot, mostly theoretical)

as for howler, nice sig-though the one criticism I find is the one most new members get. Change the placement of the watermark-it bumps up that kb limit, and seems tacky as it's "pasted" outside. Try creating a separate frame for it, or incorporating it into the image itself ;) Like for Yakta's, I centered it to fill up the middle column, satisfying the Thirds Rule, and making it a bit like a pyramid since line 1 is longest, line 2 is slightly less, and the watermark finishes it off

LordWolv
04-09-2012, 07:20 AM
Yeah, the customer will also tend to be more happy if it's in the signature itself as it will be more unnoticable, but if you look for it you'll find it. Get that balance and you'll be great.

TheHowlerrr
04-09-2012, 08:15 AM

Yeah, I had real trouble placing the watermark, it just didn't look good anywhere. Ah well, I'll get it eventually :p

So, I've got a question for anybody that can do it. Does anybody know how to make the file size of a sig smaller? The one I had is like 190kb or something and the limit is only like 60. Maybe making the image smaller? Idk how to fix it. But I think it's b/c it's a gif image and not just a jpg. I'll post it here and if anybody can do it, that'd be sweet!

There's a couple of ways, but making the image smaller makes it massive, as the amount of pixels has to fit in a smaller place.

I just use google images :P
And I'd recommend getting a program like GIMP, or maybe paint.NET. Both are free, and while GIMP produces Photoshop quality graphics, pdn is soooo simple to use.

So, the UUSDG is notorious for it's clean and professional signatures; so I self-challenged myself with something new. The idea was to make a signature that's 'messy', but still has a professional feel, and while being messy it's also clean (I hope that made sense). I settled with the pencil on paper effect, with lots of things crossed out, as you can see. I attempted to make the bits like my name and rank stand out more than the crossings out.

High quality, forum inappropriate, just for show:
http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/3706/unused.png
94KB

For forum use, lower quality:
http://img850.imageshack.us/img850/7964/17412170.png
50KB

I might change my current sig for this one; tell me what you think of my challenge and any improvements/edits that would look better.

Great job Isaac, you've definitely improved since I've been around, great work. The second one looks much better. The re-position of text an objects along with the shading of Ezio all worked wonders.

One thing though, your name and rank seem to have shadows behind them which make them appear as objects lying on the paper rather than something drawn on. If this is what you were going for then it looks great but if you were going for the drawn look I would say you should get rid of the shadows and maybe smudge the edges a bit. Either way, excellent work my friend.

Btw, I have a question. What method did you use to make the edges of the post-it (the edges of the ubi logo) look rough and jagged?

LordWolv
04-12-2012, 06:14 PM
Thanks, I added the shadow to help it stand out more; I was worried it would blend in with all the 'scribbles' so I did that. I'll have a look how I can change it.

For the Ubi logo I firstly put inner-angled shadows, posterized it to give it the less developed drawn-effect. The shadows then looked like darker pencil lines rather than shadows. I then sharpened it I think 225%, and it came out like that. I was messing around but it looks quite good I think.

Appreciate the comments, I'll have a look at redrafting it. ;)

EmperorxZurg
04-13-2012, 12:45 AM
if you want to make the font still "part of the paper" but stand out-change the font. Or, better yet, make it look like you it was drawn in sharpie or felt marker! Doesn't all have to be pencil :p though that sig is great! I personally love the cut out Ubi logo-very nicely done. The entire thing looks like it should be WAY over 50kb-but nice job pulling off the file size too!

hmmmm.....I understand your point, but how should I? I was mostly trying to go for how they do it with the "synch" bar when you do a mission (where it tells you that optional objective)

Blind2Society
04-14-2012, 03:10 AM
Many different ways you could go about it I suppose. Maybe add some texture to the box, text or both. Maybe try adding some depth to either maybe by recessing the text into the box or doing the opposite. Maybe make one or both pop out slightly using highlights. Or just even add a bit of shine maybe a metallic effect of some sort. I'm not too sure exactly but they are just a bit too flat at the moment. Other than that though it looks really good.

Also something I just noticed. The top line of text isn't centered vertically in the text box ; )

Here's a much, much better version of my previous Stop-Motion film creation:

http://youtu.be/3FqOZRRWXUY

I've had to make it into a video because it's too large a file to make it a GIF without significant quality loss.

How I've improved:
1. Much better camera, allowing for more accurate photos.
2. Light controlled as much as possible, all sunlight was blocked from the room and it only had one fixed light source.
3. I fixed the camera as much as I could without specialist equipment.
4. A bit of red food colouring in the water for effect. :)
5. Made sure I haven't reflected off anything and nobody else was in the room.
6. No bottle jerks, that was blue tacked to the table out of camera view.

Comments please. :)

EmperorxZurg
04-24-2012, 05:03 AM
I like it; much better and more controlled. However, there was a slight shake still. I imagine this is most likely to pressing the camera for picture taking? Most cameras come with optional remotes so as to avoid this, if you have one. If it's filling the water that makes it slightly shake.....I'm not sure what to tell you XD but great first attempt at stop motion! I recommend watching KnoxKorner on Youtube-he's a pro at claymation (a form of stop motion). He'd be a good source to study if you want to continue.

LordWolv
05-16-2012, 07:09 AM
Thanks; I sort of messed it up though, the original size was 1000 x 300 and I couldn't optimize it down with pixelating it. A lesson for the future I guess.
Also I sorta accidently stretched it xD
I'll try it again later, stick with this sig for now.

Hey Isaac, your signature looks pretty good ;)
The thing you can still improve is your typography though,

Play with the length, width and spaces between texts and characters.
Makes it much more interesting to look at :)

Oh yea, here's a sig I made a while back for the Secret Society Rogue clan I'm in.
It's not for our forums that's why it's a bit bigger.

I agree with Slime for Isaac's sig-very nice concept, just work on the typography :p if you want to improve the concept more, make it like the batman arkham city cover! It has more melds



BUt none of this matters because TOONAMI IS BACK NOW :D

Hey guys, for the GR:FS contest it might be prudent to spread the news to other forums with potentially interested members, to ensure we get enough entries. We might even wish to decide to spread the news to non-Ubisoft forums, provided their rules allow it, though I think it would be a good idea to ask the people there to make an account on the Ubisoft forums and enter the contest here.

http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?um=1&...:13,s:16,i:138


I would like my gamertag on there: Venix245, I would like the Far Cry 3 added on to it maybe in the top left with my gamertag in the bottom left?and I would also like some writing on there saying:

Step into madness
Face Iinsanity

And then maybe fancy it up somehow? Havnt got a clue how suprise me lol maybe you could incorporate the colour red into it or something?


If this is too much let me know : ) thanks guys

EmperorxZurg

no problem, Isaac :p

hey, Soulless! NIce stuff, but you seem to be in what some designers call "the generic run." Notice how a lot of your sigs seem to be a render, with some abstract C4D or grunge textures? These have become common on the internet as designing becomes more easily accessible. You seem to be experimenting with shape, as seen by your champ ads and the "legends logo" you have on the left hand side for some sigs. But try pushing it a bit more, make things that seem like they could be found in real life (you seem to be in the style of generic grunge, as I was earlier, so I'm just saying what helped me improve). Try making a tv from scratch that is displaying some TV character and their info as a siggy, or maybe a high tech monitor that a secret agency would be using to look at a dossier. Endless possibilities! :p Overall, some really nice stuff, glad to see you've fiddled with animation as well. Try broadening your horizons and genre though, make something completely new! Experiment!

EmperorxZurg
07-04-2012, 09:25 AM
also, soulless, your current sig is above forum limits. Limit here is 60kb ;) you need to change yours or the mods will strike it down.

SoullessKassidy
07-04-2012, 10:18 AM
yea most of those are old as I haven't really been able to do gfx for fun, been a gfx mod for UOC a league site for ufc games. I been doing posters, forum header images, camp logos/avatars/sigs. Afflicted legends is my camp on the site, and the fighter renders I cut out of photos taken by my phone; I use to have a comp which I used my black magic shuttle on but now I am just using a macbook which isn't compat with it.

DBZ, Lestat, altair, and vader are all Stock manipulations, along with these :

EmperorxZurg
07-05-2012, 06:19 AM
hmm, if you want to work with other renders, try to get the video playing on your mac book. Then you can have some better quality then your phone, since you probably know how to screen shot a video on a mac :p then its a simple task of making a matte. and yeah, those stock manipulations still seem a wee generic, as it's a stock character with a mostly abstract background. Have you tried using abnormal shapes for these sigs? More so than just the logo to the left, but something that utilizes more radicalized shapes; like showing dominance by making mattes of the important features of a person (eyes, for example), shown only by alpha channel'd triangles? Just suggestions :p nice work though!

It's going too fast for me to see what it is, but that may be because I had a lack of good sleep last night so I can't focus on it really well xD Other than that, try keeping your Forum name/Xbox 360 username at the same place in every frame :P

Looks good though (:

07-10-2012, 05:58 PM
yeah, the name rocking is a side effect of it being made into a gif. In the xcf form and frame by frame, it's actually staying still XD I decided to just go with it because it makes it look like the ship flying by is "rocking" the names back and forth XD

I like 'Simplicity is the greatest complexity.' :P

But yeah, I like it, it's a shame about the frame shake but it is inevitable. I can see what it is, but I don't know, personally I'd make it a bit slower. Just so you can concentrate on it a little more.

It is a mostly temporary measure to reduce the spam bots on the forum that seem to be invading the place recently.

It is only until they can come up with a better way to stop them more permanently. It is a widespread issue across the entire ubisoft forums and not just AC. The captcha system has reduced the number of them getting through, but unfortunately it hasn't stopped them all. Because it has slowed them down somewhat it was decided to keep this captcha system in place a little longer until they have a chance to find a proper solution.

Okay, not sure if this is the right place, but I'd like to request a sig with three potatoes standing in a line, each of them dressed as a different Assassin (Atair, Ezio and Conner). Which Ezio outfit is up to the maker.

Think Mr. Potato head.

Not sure if this is even possible, but if it is it will be awesome.
